Please try again later. For anyone interesting in reading about Hitler’s life before the beer hall putsch in Munich, this is a great place to start.

Aside from the biographies on Hitler from Joachim Fest and others, this short book written by Hitler’s old friend Kubizek, was both enlightening and tragic at the same time. It is not a glorification of Hitler as Kubizek does point out many strange things about his friend and doesn’t praise him either, but it’s more of closer look into the early life of the future leader of Nazi Germany.

An all around good read.

August Kubizek – Wikipedia

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. It’s just weird to think of Hitler as a teenager. He augusf, and buddy Gustl reports on it in this book. Kubizek has a firsthand account that shows that many of Hitler’s traits were in place in his youth. Like working all hours, needing to have his own way, total focus on one task. Hitler was self-absorbed, and he didn’t sound like much of a friend.

I don’t understand why Kubizek put up with him. Kubizek book is perceptive, balanced, and funny in places. A very readable account. One person found this helpful.

I’m no professional historian, but it feels rare to come across material on this subject that feels as if one hasn’t heard or read some version before. This account, of the only genuine friend of his youth, was new to me — and I’ve been reading and watching material directly or peripherally about him for decades.

It’s also rare to find an account by anyone who knew Hitler long before he became so central to history, the weird center of a gathering and then raging world-storm. But Hitler was after all a human being who came from somewhere, was once a teenager, had a mother who loved him and, it turns auugust, a friend who knew him as well as anyone did and cared for akgust when they were both quite young.

Kubize that friend had any help assembling this book, it seems to me a persuasive, rare, and valuable addition to kubizeo we may know about this disastrous man. A must read for anyone interested in the early years of Adolf Hitler. Kubizek, who shared a childhood and later an apartment with Hitler, provides unparalleled insights into the German leader’s personality, interests, and beliefs.

His book is augyst written and compelling. Highly recommended for historians and students of Nazi Mubizek and Adolf Hitler’.

I would recommend this book kubizsk anyone who has studied the life of Adolf Hitler. It brings him to life as a real person better than any other biography of him I’ve read — even though Kubizek’s book covers only the years of their friendship as teenagers, and their meetings in the late s when the talented musician August Kubizek was a minor provincial official, and Adolf Hitler — once a frustrated architect and practically penniless — was leading the Third Reich down a path of conquest that ended in massive defeat and his own suicide.


Despite the introduction by Hitler biographer Ian Kershaw, who does his best to poison the well and cast doubts on many things in the narrative, Kubizek’s book rings true, all the way through.

Kubizek freely admits a number of times that he cannot remember certain details about their lives together, and confesses his own ignorance about things political — which fascinated his friend Hitler from a young age.

One gets the distinct impression that Adolf Hitler would have been a very difficult friend indeed, with his kybizek worldview, his demands on one’s time, and his interminable monologues. But having said that, it is obvious from Kubizek’s words that he loved Hitler ukbizek a friend, and truly valued that friendship.

Kubizek tells in detail about aspects of Hitler’s life often glossed over by other biographers.

He describes Hitler’s deep and abiding love for his mother, his occasional, totally unselfish acts such as cleverly persuading Kubizek’s father to allow his son to attend college to lubizek the musical career he longed for — even his extreme fondness for sweets such as Viennese pastry. The book also gives, indirectly, a telling portrait of its author: A quiet, amiable young man, supremely talented in music, content to be his friend’s audience of one on so many occasions simply because Hitler WAS his friend and needed someone to listen.

It’s doubtful if a book quite like this one exists about any other kubizzek leader. It’s a splendid read. See all 43 reviews.
